One key promise in Donald’s Trump campaign was to build a wall across the U.S. Mexico border. Early into Trump’s presidency he began signing executive orders to push forward this plan. Right away Mexico’s President Enrique Peña Nieto refused to meet with Trump to discuss the wall. This is because Trump wanted Mexico to pay for the wall, but right from the start they refused.
Despite all this Trump promised a wall and he knew he needed to follow through on his promises to maintain the respect of the people. So a wall was built. Due to the low funds for the project the end result is a three foot wall which stretches across the 1,900 mile U.S. Mexico border.
The reaction is not what Trump was hoping for, the people are furious about it. American’s taxes have been raised greatly to pay for this wall. The fury just greatened when a private investigator revealed that illegal immigrant workers were paid low wages to build the wall.
Trump has since given
Americans two options to make the wall higher: raise their taxes by 50 percent and hire illegal immigrants to work on it or raise taxes by 100 percent and hire only American citizens to work on it.
